Terrorist Attack on Canadian Parliament?

“Looks like it,” Noah Rothman writes at Hot Air:

The situation in Canada is still developing and many reports regarding the violence in Canada are unconfirmed, but what is known is that at least one police officer was wounded when a shooter attacked him at the war memorial in Ottawa. What was described as a “lone gunman” then entered Canada’s parliament building where this person engaged in a firefight with police before he or she was incapacitated.

It seems that early reports which indicated the attack on parliament was the work of a “lone gunman” were inaccurate. At least one Canadian police official told an MSNBC anchor that multiple suspects were involved in the initial incident. He described the attackers as “numerous.”

Read the whole thing. And as Glenn Reynolds adds in his update, “stay tuned. Early reports are often unreliable.”
